Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.
And as for their appearances, they four had one likeness, as if a wheel had been in the midst of a wheel. When they went, they went upon their four sides; they turned not as they went, but to the place whither the head looked they followed it; they turned not as they went.
And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.
And the cherubims lifted up their wings, and mounted up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them, and every one stood at the door of the east gate of the LORD'S house; and the glory of the GOD of Israel was over them above. (Ezekiel 10:3,10-11,14,19)
Here, they lifting up the Throne as GOD departs from the Temple in Jerusalem, and then all of Judah. GOD has judged the Jews for their sIn, and is not only departing the house where He meets His people, but also pulling back His hand of protection and watchcare. It does not mean He has entirely discarded Judah, any more than He discarded Israel earlier. He always has a faithful remnant whom He cares for and will deliver through whatever He allows.
We in seeing Ezekiel's vision must remember that our GOD is Holy and is due our worship. He alone is worthy of our devotion, and our praise. When we forget Him, and act as practical atheists He is grieved. And like He did to Judah, He will chastise His own as His children. We will experience the consequences of our choices and our actions.
But for those that don't know Jesus, GOD is not willing that you should perish. He calls you to believe in Him and His finished work on the Cross of Calvary to pay for your sIn and the free gift of Salvation that He offers. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Place your faith in Him for forgiveness and be born again to a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship that is abundant and everlasting. Receive Him by Faith today.
GOD calls us to worship and adore Him, and tell others of His mercy and grace.
